Why You Should Listen: 

The car is on fire, and there’s no driver at the wheel

And the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides

And a dark wind blows 

The government is corrupt

And we’re on so many drugs

With the radio on and the curtains drawn 

We’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machine

And the machine is bleeding to death 

The sun has fallen down

And the billboards are all leering

And the flags are all dead at the top of their poles 


Hey! If you like my work, or you like me, or you feel in any way like you’re a part of whatever club this is I’m in, then listen up: Emily Youcis is our people. She makes full animation in the classical tradition but from a truly disturbed outsider standpoint I feel like I relate to. I’m going to pitch her a few bucks every month to help her make her film. Watch this video, and see if you want to, too. 


Favourite Movies - The Fifth Element (1997)

Zorg: Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction, disorder and chaos. Now take this empty glass. Here it is: peaceful, serene, boring. But if it is destroyed… look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and colour. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. You see, father, by causing a little destruction, I am in fact encouraging life. In reality, you and I are in the same business.
